Business of the Year entrant – Nemesis Now

Nemesis Now creates licensed giftware, merchandise and collectibles, working with the world’s most iconic entertainment brands across TV, film, music and gaming to develop unique and exclusive products.

A proactive export policy has seen the company’s EU revenue increase by 113% over the last two years and its rest of the world revenue increase by 187%.

This has been achieved by replicating Nemesis Now’s already successful UK market but tailoring it to the intricacies of new export markets.

It has established its US entity, Nemesis Now Inc, expanded its warehouse capacity by 20% and opened a second Stoke-on-Trent base.

New and innovative online techniques have driven an increase in web traffic of more than 91% since 2020.

The website runs on 100% renewable energy and Nemesis Now is one of the first UK licensed merchandise producers to introduce plastic-free and fully recyclable packaging.

Employment in the business is continuing to increase both locally and internationally, with the headcount up 22% due to expansion. So far this year Nemesis Now has hired five new employees for brand new roles as well as several warehouse staff. New employment opportunities are set to arise from the opening of the US entity.

Managing Director Nick Chadwick said: “As a Managing Director, one of the most fulfilling aspects is witnessing the growth and development of individuals within the organization. Seeing talented people evolve and flourish into key and integral members of the team is truly a highlight.”

It may have a global presence but Nemesis Now is still very much rooted in Stoke-on-Trent. The company supports local charities and community projects including taking part in DJH Mitten Clarke’s five-a-side football tournament and for Christmas 2022 all annual corporate gifts were donated to Stoke-on-Trent foodbank.

Nemesis Now has entered the Business of the Year category of Staffordshire University Business Awards.
